Just a closer walk with CHRIST

 

Suffering brings us closer to our LORD GOD,

It is when we acknowledge our weakness

and depend on HIS GREATNESS,

That we experience HIS power working for us;

Then when we are weak, we become strong

For it is  HIS strength that sustains us.

 

In  suffering, our ears are more attuned to HIS words of comfort,

‘Be not afraid, I am with you always’

We lean not on our own understanding,

But to HIS wise counsel and promises inclining;

We more readily accept HIS HOLY WILL

For our lives,  trusting that in all things

 Almighty GOD works for the good

Of those who love HIM.

 

CHRIST walks  closely to those who love HIM,

HE extends HIS GRACE

Love and strength for each new day;

Patience, power of endurance in place,

Our spirit of faith is renewed

Deepening our loving gratitude.

 

Christ is a faithful GOD

Like a father, He defends, shields and protects His children,

Like a mother, HE hides us under the shelter of HIS wings;

Like a shepherd, HE uses HIS rod and staff to chase away ravenous wolves;

As our REDEEMER, CHRIST is our LIGHT and SALVATION,

As  Almighty GOD sees CHRIST in us,

CHRIST makes possible our eternal resurrection.
